‘dazzingly good chamber ensemble’ The Times
'...no praise can be too high for the Fibonacci Sequence's polished and dashingly committed performances...' Gramophone
One of Britain’s most foremost chamber ensembles, The Fibonacci Sequence perform the sublime masterpiece, The Octet in F by Franz Schubert.
Written as a commission and modelled on Beethoven’s Septet, Schubert’s Octet in F takes the form of a largescale divertimento – a piece to be listened to as recreation, not too demanding, not too serious. Composed in March 1824, it is the largest in scale of Schubert’s chamber works with scoring for clarinet, bassoon, horn, two violins, viola, cello and double bass.
Schubert’s gift for melody and for brilliant yet delicate decoration shines on this disc, highlighted by the voice of the solo violin as it traverses the myriad moods of this sublime masterpiece with the clarinet and fellow members of this distinguished ensemble.
“This recording...in wonderfully natural sound, with the instruments exceptionally well balanced. The playing is relaxed, seemingly taking the view that is virtually music to eat to...this disc makes ideal easy listening” BBC Music Magazine, February 2011 ****
“The Fibonacci Sequence want you to know Schubert's Octet is as inventive as the best of his work...Disc of the year material, I'd say. The Fibonaccis sound like they're having a ball.” Classic FM Magazine, March 2011 *****
“Allegros are taken at a properly lively tempo, and I enjoyed the propulsive double-bass playing of Duncan McTier...There is pleasant, understated horn playing from Stephen Stirling” International Record Review, January 2011
“The ever adaptable Fibonacci Sequence – ensemble in residence at Kingston School of Music – here led by Jack Liebeck, savour the six movements in a beautifully balanced recording that bowls along with affectionate sweetness.” The Independent on Sunday, 20th March 2011
